Barcelona teenager Lamine Yamal was thrilled to score his second goal of the season to see off Osasuna in the Super Cup on Thursday.

Yamal struck late in the game to secure a 2-0 victory and a spot in the final against Real Madrid.

Joao Felix set up the teenager for his strike with some great play, and Yamal was quick to thank his team-mate after the final whistle.

“I’m very happy for the spot in the final and for the goal. I have thanked João for the assist. We are very confident and looking forward to the final,” he said.

Yamal was also asked about his chances of starting the game after replacing the injured Raphinha against Osasuna.

“The one who decides is the coach. If he gives me the opportunity to be in the XI, I will take advantage of it. I think that beating Madrid in the final would be a turning point. We’d go all the way up.”

Barcelona did beat Madrid in last year’s final but slipped to a 2-1 defeat to Los Blancos earlier this season at Montjuic.
